Gotten really cheap in quality
26 April 2012
Summary: I purchased this camera as a replacement for a 7010 that was dropped (screen broke). While the picture quality seems ok, this 7040 camera is not anywhere near the same quality as it's predicessor. It feels very lightweight and "cheap".
Summary: CAMERA WAS TOTALLY DEFECTIVE, SENT IT BACK FOR A REFUND. I HAVE HAD THIS CAMERA BEFORE AND I LIKE THE CAMERA, HOWEVER THIS ONE WAS DEFECTIVE UPON ARRIVAL. I WILL NOT BUY A CAMERA FROM THIS RETAILER AGAIN. [...]
Stopped working after the first time I recharged it.

Summary: Used the camera once till the battery ran down. It seemed to work fine. Then I plugged it in to recharge it last night so that we could use it for a school event today. The light came on indicating that it was charging.
Summary: Be caution! Olympus Stylus 70X0 series have lens stuck problem, the cover of the lens keep open and the optical zoom lens stuck open. In most cases, you could make the len back by gently knocking it. But not fun at all! Except that, I agree it's great for the price.
Summary: This is my 6th Olympus camera (4th digital one), so I am quite an Olympus fan. I bought the Stylus 7040 for its compact size, wide angle, and HD video capability. The Stylus 7040 is by far less intuitive than all previous digital cameras I'e owned(FE-280, Camedia C-60, and D-490).
